Cold and flu season is here! There are several ways to prevent or lessen the impact of influenza.

  • Getting your flu shot is the most effective way to prevent the flu. Influenza vaccinations cannot provide 100% protection, but they can lessen the severity and duration of symptoms. Flu shots are still available at SHS. Call 215-746-3535 to schedule an apointment.
  • Soap+water+30 seconds. Practicing good hand hygiene will help to reduce the spreads of germs.
  • Lastly, practice good self-care. The sooner you take care of yourself, the sooner the illness will pass.

Still have questions? Visit our Flu FAQ and learn about the signs and symptoms of influenza.

There is a national shortage of Yellow Fever vaccine. The only US manufacturer, Sanofi Pasteur, has very tight restrictions on the vaccine supply. Currently, SHS has limited availability of  the Yellow Fever vaccine, which will be given in strict accordance with CDC recommendations. Please call to discuss your travel plans should they be to areas where the vaccine is required.
